The Benefits of Using Nestable Plastic Pallets


Nestable Pallets

Are you looking for better, cost-effective, space-saving solutions for your business? Have you considered using nestable plastic pallets? This revolutionary system is gaining in popularity for a number of reasons, and here’s why. Here, we break down the benefits of using these nestable containers and provide some information for you to be able to make well-informed decisions for your business.

Nestable Plastic Pallets: What Are They?

A nestable pallet is an efficient storage system where a container nests or sits one inside another. This type of nestable system takes up much less storage space for pallet storage and transit. With a 4:1 nest ratio, a set of nestable plastic pallets can save up to four times the space needed by stackable plastic or wood pallets.

Why Consider Nestable Containers?

In addition to offering durability and safety, nestable plastic pallets offer smart space-saving pallet storage solutions along with durability and safety. This system lets you stack more pallets at a safe height without compromising the structural integrity.

Save precious floor space and keep your items safely stored. In addition to being space and cost-effective, nestable containers are recyclable, durable, weather-resistant, impact-resistant and even customizable.


Plastic Vs. Wood Pallets

If you’re planning on shipping goods to another country, plastic pallets offer many benefits in addition to allowing you to save on freight costs due to their lighter weight and density. Wood pallets and packaging made from unmarked woods have been known to get retained and possibly destroyed or re-exported. Play it safe and use plastic.

Plastic pallets and nestable containers offer your business a great alternative to wood pallets. They’re lighter in weight and density, they are extremely durable and their strength allows for a long life span, making them extremely cost-effective and environmentally friendly. They are much easier to transport, move and handle than wood. Without nails or broken boards, the risk of injury is a non factor, making them a favorable choice amongst both employers and employees.

Great For Sensitive Materials

If you’ve got sensitive materials that you’re looking to store or ship, then nestable plastic containers should definitely be in the running, as one of your top choices. The automotive industry, for example, requires many different types of parts that can’t risk being damaged. Similarly, the agricultural industry requires that their products stay fresh, clean and safe while stored and during transport.

Our nestable pallets are made from top-quality materials, ensuring that they are able to withstand outside temperatures and elements including moisture. Moreover, our containers are resistant to acid and corrosion, making them a top choice in both the automotive and agricultural industries.

Nestable industrial plastic containers can be sanitized and are easily washable to ensure that quality assurance practices are properly maintained at all times.

45 x 48 x 34 Collapsible Bulk Container

plastic container 45-48-34

With all the varieties of containers out there, how can you possibly narrow down what you want and what works best for your business needs?

The world of plastic containers can be an overwhelming one, with so many choices.  Plastic containers may not be your passion, but they’re certainly one of ours.

We take our job seriously and we love what we do.  Bringing the latest technology, style, design and materials to all our containers is standard practice for us.

When you purchase a container from us, whether you’re buying new or used or leasing, we guarantee that you’re getting the best there is.  Let’s take a look at the difference between new and used.

Here’s a little more insight into the world of plastic containers.

New And Used Bulk Plastic Containers

Just like when you’re looking to buy a car, you may consider buying a used one.  Why? Perhaps the new model is out of your price range; perhaps the used model is more obtainable for your budgetary needs.

You’re still able to buy a great car, but you may be able to benefit from something that someone else no longer needs. Well, the same holds true with containers (get the clever pun?)

One of our featured plastic containers is our prized 45 x48 x34, available in both new and used.  This is a gem!  This container can hold between 1500 and 2000 lbs, and the container itself only weighs in between 118-145lbs, making it very lightweight.

Not only is this container stackable, making it a favorable storage option, but it’s also collapsable, which allows you to maximize your space.  And yes, we have thought of everything.

This container also offers two fold-down doors with spring-loaded latches, making it easily accessible for 4 way forklifts.

The Strength Is In The Plastic

If you’re looking at our used or pre-loved containers, rest assured that we only sell those in top-notch condition.  Just like our new containers, they are made from High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) which is commonly used for building materials based on its strength and durability.

HDPE has been shown to be stronger than most plastics, as well as stronger than wood and even some metals.  This isn’t your kids’ lego plastic! Its strength coupled with its lightweight properties, make this material very desirable in the container world. It’s no wonder that this is one of our most popular containers.

HDPE also helps make these containers great due to its resistance to chemicals and weather conditions.  When shipping products in these containers, you can ship with the comfort of knowing that your goods are being safely transported and will arrive intact.

These containers are also eco-conscious since HDPE gives off no harmful fumes and is much more environmentally friendly to manufacture, and they’re built to not only last but to withstand almost anything you throw at it.

Uses for These Bulk Plastic Containers

Not only are these containers a popular choice based on their durability, but their versatility too.  These containers are used in the agricultural industry to keep perishable items fresh and safe during transport.

The automotive industry relies on these containers to store and ship a variety of car parts.  Whether you’ve got delicate perishables or clunky car parts, these plastic containers get the job done!

Depending on your needs, you may choose to either use plastic containers or metal containers.
